I am trying to upgrade to php 5.5 using remi repository, My OS is Centos 6.4, but my problem is

when i run the command

 yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-php55 install php

i still see the php version 5.4 only, how do i update my remi-repository to use the latest version ?

When i run the remi version i ger

[root]# rpm -q remi-release

I tried many commands like

yum update

but there is no luck for me.

Edit your question and add the (suitably trimmed) output of your yum command. – Iain Jan 31 '14 at 8:17

Edit below file in vim or nano

vim /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo


enabled = 0


enabled = 1

The command line switch --enablerepo=remi,remi-php55 would enable the relevant repos without the need to edit the file surely. – Iain Jan 31 '14 at 17:47
